Found these last night all over a cornflower plant. So I collected them with what I was 99.9% certain was their food plant. Turns out it isn't!
Please can you tell me what they are and what they eat?
Thanks for taking a look.
They're hoverfly larvae, feeding on the aphids which are feeding on your cornflowers. You can see the aphids in your 730 picture.
Thank you very much for your speedy response.
